The Mesmerist

6 user reviews 4

Is there a better gin bar in Brighton than one modelled on the gin palaces of the 1920s? The Mesmerist is an unconventional bar brought to life by its eccentric décor. One of the liveliest bars in the seaside city, its best to visit when you want to drink and enjoy yourself. Their back bar is stocked full of different and delicious gins, but they are most famous for their cocktails, so treat your taste buds to a Ginger Beer, made of Tanqueray gin, root ginger, lemon, gingerbread syrup, Laines Beers and a gingernut biscuit on the side.

Only a stone's throw from Brighton train station is Grand Central, a charming bar with a delightful roof terrace when the sun comes out. But there's more than one string to the venue's bow: not only does it host the Nightingale Theatre, but also The Nightingale Room, a dedicated gin bar. Boasting hand crafted cocktails topped with fresh garnishes and made from the finest botanical spirits, there are many reasons why Grand Central should be a stop on your quest for the best Brighton gin bars.

You can kind of guess that The Gin Tub is going to be on a list of the best gin bars in Brighton, but it doesn't get by on name alone. On top of their huge selection of gin and quirky decorations is a commitment to delicious cocktails, crafted carefully by bartenders with years of experience. They also lined the walls so people can't get phone signal inside the venue, which means you should bring that one friend who chooses to go on Facebook instead of talking to you.    

The Black Dove

The Black Dove is a curious emporium of old-school wares and exemplifies its quirkiness with creative drinks. The Victorian inspired den has a decent selection of gins on their shelf, but their piece de resistance is the 'Cocktail Bible', a list of mixed drinks prepared by their master bartenders, including plenty of gin-based concoctions.
